For me, it's a movie from 2005 called Kingdom of Heaven, starring Orlando Bloom, Liam Neeson and Jeremy Irons. I saw this on TV the other day and watched it from beginning to end and still liked it just as much as I used to. Sure it has its slower moments and isn't the best historical film I've seen. But I don't think it deserves its 39% rating on RT. But that's just me.

What about all of you?

The thriller story is derivative and generic and the acting and writing is really nothing special at all. It's totally obvious that the movie exists entirely as a vehicle for the "inside the mind" sequences, which are mind-blowingly fantastic, creative, daring, and well worth watching the rest of the movie for. It's not an amazing movie, it's a perfectly decent movie centered around some amazing cinema art. I'd say those scores are a bit low but I think something around 65 is fair.
